Hitters

Jake Fraley, OF, Cincinnati Reds

Fraley missed a significant portion of the season with a knee injury, but he has returned with power numbers that fantasy managers need to be aware of.

Fraley has produced a .282/.374/.535 slash with five homers, 11 RBI, and 15 runs in his last 22 games. His .909 OPS and two stolen bases during that span are the icings on top to an outfielder who should be added immediately to all fantasy baseball leagues.

Riley Greene, OF, Detroit Tigers

The hyped outfield prospect has ups and downs in the big leagues. However, Riley Greene has started to come on in his last dozen games. Greene is hitting .294/.333/.490 with two home runs, two doubles, and five RBI.

His overall numbers do not look enticing, but it takes rookies time to adjust. It seems that Greene has changed, and it's time to re-invest in the rookie outfielder.

Manuel Margot, OF, Tampa Bay Rays

Manuel Margot just returned from a 60-day injured list stay due to a patella tendon strain. His return jump-started the Tampa Bay Rays offense, producing seven wins out of their last ten games.

Margot is slashing .308/.333/.462 with a .795 OPS in his seven games after his return. He has three extra-base hits among his eight total hits and has scored five runs in those games. Fantasy managers probably forgot about Manuel Margot. You should seize the opportunity and reaps the awards in a deep league format.

Pitchers

Kyle Bradish, SP, Baltimore Orioles

Since returning from the injured list with shoulder inflammation, Bradish has posted a 3.14 ERA and 1.26 WHIP along with a .286 BABIP in his five starts. Hitters are slashing a below-average .236/.325/.340.

Bradish was coming from his longest career start when he pitched eight innings against the Houston Astros. The right-hander did not allow an earned run and only surrendered two hits and six strikeouts. While the inconsistency might harm your categories, Bradish is best utilized against weaker hitter lineups besides the success he enjoyed against the Astros.

Bailey Falter, SP, Philadelphia Phillies

The Philadelphia Phillies activated southpaw Bailey Falter after they placed Zach Wheeler on the injured list with forearm tendonitis. Falter will look to get a couple of turns in the rotation until Wheeler returns.

Falter is coming off consecutive solid starts where he has produced two wins and a 9/2 K/BB ratio across 12 innings. His numbers should alert fantasy managers to a deep streamer option that could be useful this week against the Arizona Diamondbacks, who have produced bottom ten numbers against left-handers.

Matt Manning, SP, Detroit Tigers

The Detroit Tigers can not get a break with their young starting pitchers. The Tigers have suffered enough, with Casey Mize and Tarik Skubal going under the knife. One slight gleam of hope is the recent return of right-hander Matt Manning. Manning has been out of the Tigers rotation since mid-April due to a notable shoulder injury but came off the injured list earlier this month.

In the seven starts since his return, Manning is 1-1 with an outstanding 2.37 ERA and 1.10 WHIP. He is allowing an above-average .236/.275/.321 slash line and is coming off consecutive solid starts in which he allowed only earned run across 13 innings. Manning is healthy and a reliable streamer option to close out the season.
